Soya Keema Curry

Have you ever been feeling like missing your favorite mutton curry during auspicious or vratham days?? Then this is the one for you. Enjoy this minced soya instead of minced mutton, and you will enjoy the taste of this curry. This goes well with idly, dosa, poori, chappathi, appam and even rice.

Preparation Time: 20 min
Cooking Time: 40 min
Serves: 2

  • Soya chunks - 1 cup
  • Onion - 1 big sized - finely chopped
  • Tomato - 2 medium sized - finely chopped
  • Masala Powder (Cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, star anise powder) - 1 pinch
  • Oil - 2 tbsp

To grind:
  • Coconut - 2 tbsp
  • Kuruma Podi - 1 tbsp
  • Chili powder - 2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Cashew nuts - 5 to 6
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp

  1. Take 3 cups of water in a pan and bring it to boil. Add soya chunks and a tbsp of salt. Keep in low flame for 10 min allowing the soya to get cooked and become soft. Salt helps in stopping the overflow of boiling water while the chunks gets cooked.
  2. In meanwhile, blend the ingredients given in "to grind" into a  smooth paste using a mixer by adding water.
  3. When soya gets doubled in size it becomes soft. Now drain out the water and rinse with cold water. Squeeze the soya to remove excess water. Put these prepared soya into a blender or food processor and mince them. Keema is ready and will like mutton keema, right?? ;-)
  4. Heat a medium sized pan with oil, when its hot add the masala powder. Then add chopped onion and saute for 3 min. Onion will start turning golden brown. At this point add our prepared keema. Saute in medium flame for 5 min.
  5. Then add tomatoes and the prepared paste in step 2. Add 2 cup of water and allow the curry to boil for 5 min in low-medium flame. 
Yummy soya curry is ready to serve with your breakfast or dinner.
